I saw this on Pinterest and Honey helped me! I bet sometimes he thinks Pinterest is awesome and the other times he thinks it might just be the devil! I now use it to store my garden tools
and gloves. Certainly has increased his creative work load around the house! The mailbox belonged to my son's great-great grandparents and his namesake AP Young. It is priceless to us!

Evidently this is gonna be a good year for spiders. Use caution when reaching into anything
because you don't know who's been there first. I have a bite on my back. Have no idea what because I haven't been crawling into any dark spaces. A friend of mine had a bite on the inside of her forearm - much nastier looking than mine. She was weeding and thought all she had to worry about was avoiding the poison ivy. I had the doctor check it out - all this talk about recluse type made me justifiably paranoid. Someone in the next room must have gotten into poinson ivy. I think he may have written the same 3 prescriptions for all of us on Saturday.
I had so much fun putting my "Polatems" together. I collected beautiful pots and plates from Goodwill and garage sales. I dug a hole 12" deep intserted a piece of rebar, which can be purchased at a hardware store in any length of your choice. Fill the hole with concrete. Level the rebar to make it straight. Once the concrete dries..overnight is good, start putting the pots and plates onto the rebar in an artistic order, gluing them as you go..I used glass glue from the hardware
store, it comes in a caulking tube. Use a level to keep each pot or plate straight. You can add pieces in the middle such as a metal dish from an old firepit as a planter or even a terricotta planter. Just be creative. Top it off with a glass ball, a ceramic bird or whatever suits you fancy. There you have it ...Enjoy and watch the birds..even the Hummers like the colors.
